Hugh Grant has revealed that he would gladly reprise his caddish role for Bridget Jones 3.

But the 51-year-old actor, who played ladies' man Daniel Cleaver in the previous two films, admitted that it's still a work in progress.

"That film is not really on yet. We are up for it, but they haven't quite cracked the script. But when they do, I'm sure we'll make it," he said.

Grant - who makes his animated debut in upcoming Aardman film The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists - said he enjoyed playing such a cad alongside Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth.

"I did like playing Daniel Cleaver in both films, but there is no definite part three," he told Total Film.

"None of the three of us have signed up for it yet. There's been a number of drafts that have had great things in them but haven't quite hit the bullseye. It's just that it does have to be significantly reinvented.

"I don't think that you could pretend that it's a year after the end of the last one because we look f*****g ancient now, all three of us," he added.

Grant teased that Daniel won't be a reformed man, saying: "He won't be, no."

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists, which also stars David Tennant and Martin Freeman, opens in cinemas on March 28. Pictures of the stars on the red carpet below:
